La Liga is the biggest league in Spanish football. It was originally founded in 1929 and has been the main competition in Spain for over 90 years, making it one of the oldest divisions in Europe. There have been more than 62 different teams who have competed in the first-tier league - with some clubs having been more successful than others. Despite the fact that more than 62 teams have played in the league, to date, only nine of these teams have ever managed to get their hands on the league title - which just goes to show the complete dominance of teams such as Real Madrid and Barcelona.
However, this isn't the only competition the leading Spanish teams fight it out for. Here at 888 sport, we also offer a range of markets and odds for the Copa Del Rey - the Spanish equivalent of the FA Cup. Last season, the Copa Del Rey title was regained by Barcelona, who managed a convincing 4-0 victory against Athletic Bilbao. They had a lot to prove after failing to get a win in 2020, which saw Real Sociedad lift the trophy. With 31 wins to their name, Barcelona will no doubt be favourites to win the cup again next year.
In the long history of La Liga, only nine teams have ever managed to win the title, with Real Madrid being the most successful of all teams, having won 34 times. Barcelona isn't too far behind, with 26 victories under their belt. Atletico Madrid has won 11 times, Athletic Bilbao has had 8 wins, and the other teams to have won include Valencia, Real Sociedad, Deportivo La Coruna, Sevilla and Real Betis.
The only team to have put a dent in Real Madrid and Barcelona's dominance in recent years is Atletico Madrid, who managed to win in the 2013/14 season and the 2020/21 season - making them the current champions.
Surprising many, Atletico Madrid dominated the last season and finished first in the table, just 2 points ahead of Real Madrid, with Barcelona falling 7 points behind the champions. Sevilla managed to nick the fourth spot, just 2 points behind Barcelona and these teams will now all take a Champions League spot.
Next season, there will be no doubt that Real Madrid and Barcelona will be looking to right that wrong and fight to retain their titles as the leading teams in the league, although Atletico Madrid will go in, full of confidence that they can repeat the achievement.
At the other end of the table, it was SD Huesca, Real Valladolid and Eibar who fell short of the standard and will be playing second league football next season. The teams taking their place after earning promotion from the Segunda division are Espanyol, Mallorca and Rayo Vallecano.
Although not quite managing the Champions League places, Real Sociedad and Real Betis managed to get fifth and sixth spots respectively, which is good enough to get them a place in the Europa League.
With the new season just opening up, it's an exciting time and we are now starting to offer some exciting La Liga odds to get you started. Here are the latest football betting odds for the winners of the 2021/22 season. With Spanish giants, FC Barcelona firm favourites to lift the trophies this year. Here are the latest La Liga odds.
As the season starts to open up, you will find even more great La Liga odds and markets becoming available. In the meantime, check out our 888 sport blog for all the latest La Liga football betting news, football betting tips and previews for all the teams such as Celta Vigo and Osasuna as well as information on former players such as Diego Simeone and coveted Spanish managers such as Rafa Benitez. For Spanish football news, we have it all covered!
Real Madrid can't ever be counted out, having been so successful - and the odds at the start of the season are pretty generous. However, Atletico Madrid is also offering exceptional value, especially considering their performance in the previous season. These are two teams definitely worth putting your money on if you're looking for a decent chance of winning.
In terms of the lead goalscorer, he may be getting on, but it's hard to ignore Lionel Messi, who is a powerhouse for Barca, having scored 30 goals last season. Benzema could also be a good call, with a decent 2020/21 season. However, we think Messi will be on fine form for goals this season again and in line to win another golden boot.
Here at 888 sport, we offer some of the most competitive La Liga odds, such as La Liga title winners, Barcelona odds, goalscorer odds and more. We offer odds on all your favourite teams, from Valencia to Villarreal. Moreover, we are licensed and regulated in Great Britain by the Gambling Commission so you can enjoy a safe experience.
Atletico Madrid were the La Liga winners in the 2020/21 campaign.
The opening weekend of La Liga Primera Division is the 13 Aug, 14 Aug and 15 Aug 2021.
Real Betis has only ever been the Spanish League winners once, back in the 1934-1935 season.
Arguably, yes. Currently, they are not La Liga champions but have won the Spanish Primera Division 34 times - more than any other team in the Spain Primera Division. Check out the latest Real Madrid odds here.
